Felt art, known as shyrdak, is an age-old tradition of the nomadic Kyrgyz people. Part mosaic, part quilt, the interlocking patterns and distinctive borders of shyrdak combine to create a rich tapestry. The designs incorporate images of sacred myths and symbols, with colors reflecting the balance in nature and the cyclical rhythm of the nomad’s world.
Inspired by the beauty of the shyrdak and the desire to sustain and foster this ancient craft, we have collaborated with master artisans in Kyrgyzstan to create a bespoke collection.
